YUGSA Health Plan

The YUGSA Health Plan is a medical insurance plan designed to be comprehensive and low cost. The plan is offered through the National Student Health Network, a not-for-profit broker who helps us to achieve discounts through volume purchasing, and is provided by Green Shield Canada. The plan is compulsory for all full-time students without comparable coverage for drugs AND dental. The plan is optional for those registered part-time. Students also have the ability to opt-in spouses (including common-law and same sex partners) and children. Those students with equivalent or greater coverage with another plan can opt-out. The plan covers you from September 1st to August 31st regardless of your opt-in date. Students starting in the summer or winter term are NOT automatically included in the health plan but may opt in.
